Report: Jeanie Buss Was Allegedly Upset Jim & Kupchak Wouldn’t Trade Ingram For DeMarcus Cousins, So She Fired Them

Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

Los Angeles Lakers part owner and President Jeanie Buss is not to be messed with.

On Tuesday, Jeanie was sick and tired of the Los Angeles Lakers not being able to get stars to turn this franchise around, so she went ahead and fired GM Mitch Kupchak and her brother Jim Buss from their duties.


Former Sacramento Kings and now current New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins is allegedly the reason for these firings.  

After Cousins got traded to the Pelicans, reports stated the Lakers had a chance to get him, but refused to trade Brandon Ingram to do it. That decision cost two people their jobs.
